Google’s Chromebooks coming to India

When I visited India this May I was impressed with the Internet connectivity over 3G. Access to the web is life line for Chromebooks and with improving Internet access in the country the stage is set for the arrival of Chromebooks.

Two Chromebooks are coming to India. The Acer C720 Chromebook (22,999 INR) and the HP Chromebook 14 (26,990 INR) will be available from select Reliance Digital and Croma stores in Delhi and Mumbai from October 17. If you can’t wait to get your hands on one, you can also pre-order your device at Flipkart Online today.

It works offline too

Google has worked really hard to make most of its own applications available offline. So even if you don’t have access to the Internet you can continue to work on your documents, read and reply to mails and do many other such things. Google has created a dedicated category within the Chrome Store which lists offline apps.
